Successful Outcomes

David Krol has successfully prosecuted numerous petitions to compel arbitration of employment disputes, and has successfully defended employers in arbitration.  Examples include:

  • Prevailed on petitions to compel arbitration of individual wage and hour claims, despite the legal contention these claims cannot be arbitrated
  • Prevailed on petitions to compel arbitration of wrongful termination, harassment, and retaliation claims, despite employees’ contentions they were not provided opportunities to review arbitration agreements before signing them, did not understand those agreements because they were not in the employees’ language of origin, and never received copies of any applicable arbitration rules
  • Successfully compelled arbitration on behalf of non-employer defendants, including managers, supervisors, and parent, subsidiary, and affiliated entities
  • Successfully asserted objections to declarations submitted by employees and their counsel in oppositions to petitions to compel arbitration, resulting in the preclusion of critical opposing evidence
  • Obtained summary judgment in age discrimination, disability discrimination, and CFRA arbitrations, resulting in complete employer victories
  • Blocked the creditor of an employee from prosecuting the employee’s wrongful termination lawsuit and companion arbitration proceeding after the employee’s death
